KET vs SOM Dream11 team, T20 Blast: who will win today match prediction?

Share

KET vs SOM dream11 today match prediction: Somerset haven’t lost a single game in their last 5 outings and Kent are 2nd in the points table. This should be a mouth watering contest between 2 equally matched sides. Tom Banton has been in sublime form and smashed a 37 ball 77 run knock including 5 maximums and 8 boundaries against Hampshire. He might find it difficult to get going against Kent bowling attack who are bolstered by the return of Adam Milne.

Somerset face a huge blow as their experienced batter in James Hildreth has been sidelined due to injury but their lower middle order is packed and the absence of Hildreth might not be a big loss.

KET vs SOM dream11 team

In dream11 prediction, lets take a look at some of the stats and records of players from both the teams.

  • Daniel Bell Drummond has scored 258 runs at a strike rate of 166 opening the innings. He has been the pillar of strength for Kent along with Jack Leaning and Jordan Cox who have scored 232 and 223 runs respectively.
  • James Hildreth is the leading run getter for Somerset in this edition but his absence at the top means Tom Banton who found his form in the previous game has to step up big time.
  • Matt Milnes has 13 wickets in this edition for Kent at an economy rate of just below 9. He would like that ER to come down a bit but he has been leading the attack neatly.
  • The left arm seamer Fred Klaassen has been amongst the wickets for Kent as well as he has 11 wickets in 8 games.
  • Somerset have a weak bowling line up considering the Kent batting order and the number of in form batters they have under their disposal. They will need Lewis Gregory and Craig Overton to come good against the in form Kent to stand a chance.
